I have always wanted to make this and one night a few weeks ago I was bored so thought I’d give it a whirl! I’ve never had wonton soup in my life before so this could be way off the mark on how it should taste and look like but it was delicious nonetheless (and fun to make! I feel wonton folding is my calling in life now).
I think the key to this is using a really good stock or broth. This is what will give it the most flavour so don’t skimp and save on it.
You can alter the filling to suit what you like. Prawns could be used in addition or as a substitute. Pork is also an option. Vary the vegetables you want to use to suit your preferences. My veggies are raw as I love the crunch but you can steam them first if you like. It’s a very adaptable dish.
My boys loved the wontons so we sometimes have these with fried rice rather than in soup form.
Get the kiddies involved in the folding process of these. It’s great fun! I used this YouTube video to help me fold the wontons. It was very easy to follow (although took me awhile to get the shape right as you can see below).
